Our consultants carried out an in-depth analysis of business processes in the company. Structured interviews were conducted with the heads of all organizational units and the documentation that is generated was collected. The project deliverable was a comprehensive document containing a detailed description of the current business processes in the company, collection of all documents and reports that are generated during operation, list of processes that need to be automated with a detailed description of how to implement it and the specification of the functionality that the new information system must meet which is the basis for a public tender. By creating this document, the client gained a clearer insight into all the activities and business processes that are executed in the company as well as an indispensable tool to facilitate the future implementation of an ERP system.
